Still Mountain Meditation

Saturday November 11, 2017: 9:30 am to 12:30 pm -- Traverwood Branch: Program Room

This event is intended for Adults

This half-day workshop with Ann Arbor's Still Mountain Meditation will offer a brief, step-by-step introduction to beginning insight meditation. Insight meditation is a simple and direct practice of moment-to-moment investigation of mind/body processes through calm, focused attention. In meditation and mindfulness practices we cultivate our ability to be present in each moment and to be aware of and more comfortable with our thoughts, emotions, and physical being.

Although historically the techniques come from Buddhist traditions, this workshop has no religious content and will approach the practices from a down-to-earth, secular perspective. This introduction is intended mainly for persons with no previous meditation experience, but all are welcome.
